Dumper bin used at a mail order pharmacy holds the packaged prescriptions that are ready to ship. When prescriptions are filled, they are put in an appropriate sized and labeled bottles and then put in a shipping box or envelope, address labeled and then they travel via various conveyors to the dump bin. This bin then dumps all the packages on a conveyor system that leads to a zip code sorting area where they are picked up by ups or other carriers.

A medically compliant method of raising, lowering and tilting a patient table.
Unit: Programmable TCI controller with pendant, foot pedal, and backup battery
The mechanical actuator is used on a particle collider test fixture that smashes atoms of different shapes and sizes at different frequencies to see if energy can be harnessed. The actuator is used to do miniscule adjustments of the collider highway to measure the energy expelled during a direct hit.
Screw Jack, Unit: 10 Ton Machine Screw Actuator for extremely precise adjustments
Stadium scoreboards enhance fan experience, movable scoreboards increase possible locations. With so many scoreboards and screens, especially those at ground level, moving equipment and personnel in and out can be problematic. Duff-Norton’s automated actuator systems (AAS) are the perfect solution to these types of problems.
